...well, actually not that easy! It insisted on not not turning round, and staying on the far side of the bush which just happened to be on the edge of a small ornamental lake. Google seems to suggest this is a Jersey Tiger Moth not a Garden one but I stand to be corrected. Taken in the grounds of Myddleton House in Enfield (N.London) which has Parker-Bowles connections. The caterpillars of this moth are the infamous Woolly Bears (irritant hairs). It's probably not the best image I've ever taken but I figured I should have at least one moth in my p/f. If anyone can help with the plant identification I'd be obliged - it was swarming with bees and Peacocks too, and looked like it might be worth having in the garden.
Iso400, 1/400s, f10, handheld, no flash, cropped image.
Many thanks to all who viewed/commented on my last (Alun and Mark for their UAs as well).
